Queer loox: The queer-feminist film series in Luxembourg

Dieser Text existiert nicht auf Deutsch.

The expanses of the American West take center stage in this intimately observed triptych from Kelly Reichardt. Adapted from three short stories by Maile Meloy and unfolding in self-contained but interlocking episodes, Certain Women navigates the subtle shifts in personal desire and social expectation that unsettle the circumscribed lives of its characters: a lawyer forced to subdue a troubled client; a wife and mother whose plans to construct her dream home reveal fissures in her marriage; and a night-school teacher who forms a tenuous bond with a lonely ranch hand, whose longing for connection delivers an unexpected jolt of emotional immediacy.

With unassuming craft, Reichardt captures the rhythms of daily life in small-town Montana through these fine-grained portraits of women trapped within the landscape’s wide-open spaces.

queer loox

queer loox is a queer-feminist film and event series in Luxembourg. Queer in a broad sense signifies a crossing of traditional identity categories and implies a critical engagement with the division between the normal’ and the social illegitimate’. The events present a wide range of feature films, documentaries, video art, ethnographic films, etc. with the intention of becoming a queer-feminist platform where people meet, talk, and sometimes even dance.
